September 23: Flashback and To Be Verbs

You know what Hamlet said . . .

To be, or not to be – that is the question:

Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer

The lowered grade of boring verb choice

Or to take action ‘gainst a sea of to-be’s,

And by opposing end them.

Hamlet, III.i

Today, we started by opposing to be verbs!

1. Students picked up this sheet (G1) and we worked through it together in class (not for a grade): Not-to-be.

2. Next, we took some notes on Flashback using this sheet: Flashback (W8).

HW: None. We will continue to work on our memoirs during class. The full rough draft will be due Monday and the full final draft will be due the following Friday, October 3.
